Norway’s Subsea 7 has been awarded a major offshore engineering contract by France’s Nexen for works at the Buzzard Phase 2 Project off the north-east coast of Scotland.
The contract scope includes project management, engineering, procurement, construction and installation of a 5km pipeline bundle along with associated well and platform tie-ins, and provision of a heavy lift vessel for transport and installation of a new topside module.
Project management and engineering for the heavy lift work scope will be conducted from Seaway Heavy Lifting’s office in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. Offshore activities are scheduled to take place in 2020.
“Subsea 7 has a long established reputation of close collaboration with clients and supply chain partners to seek out innovative and value-adding ways of working. This award represents the ideal opportunity to demonstrate this and to continue our long history of successful project delivery to Nexen,” said Jonathan Tame, Subsea 7 vice president for UK & Canada.
